Bargain hunting!

I usually make a stop to goodwill once a week. In search of vintage linen,china anything that makes me smile! Lots of time I'm drawn to color! Pink and aqua are eye candy to me! Pastels work too! So I was browsing in the furniture area when I found this lovely little piece! The floral linen is what sold me! It's just a beauty!

Lately I've been noticing DIY chalk paint in blog land. I've really wanted to try the real Annie Sloan chalk paint but, it's not sold in CT and the price is a little steep! So for a few dollars I tried a sample of aqua paint from Lowes and some plaster of paris with a few drops of water. One part plaster of paris and two parts paint! Sorry no pics I forgot!

I love the outcome! Look at the color! I may sand it a little, not sure yet. I will put some furn. wax, if anyone can suggest a wax or protectant please let me now! Also it's rather small to be an ottoman but it's all I can think of. Any one have another idea, I'd love to hear it!

Lovely vintage!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Suneday!

I am realizing my love for thrifting is getting a little overboard. I will by no means stop but I think I need to limit my thrifting! That was really hard to say! Wow! My home isn't big enough! Haha, we have a 2 bedroom house. Our spare bedroom is our computer room and soon to be nursery! Yes soon it will be our our nursery! Things in that department are proceeding again!
So what I really need to do is organize! So I did go thrifting over the weekend in search of vintage pillowcases! When your looking for something they sure are hard to find! I actually found a few a Savers! I found three a set and a single! I have something in mind I'd like to make with them! I guess since it's winter I should try to stay in and use my sewing machine and be more crafty! It's just hard to break the habit of Saturday morning tag sales and such!

How about these lovely vintage glasses! I just love them!

I'd like to share my PINK THRIFT with







Sunedays to you

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday! I actually had a stomach bug for New Year weekend! ;(

This morning I got a package in the mail, actually a late Christmas gift from my hubby! It came from Hong Kong, a Blythe doll! My first! I think in the U.S they are only sold on eBay.
So I must share a few pictures of my sweet new doll!

Happy weekend!
